2024 Lodging Options

For details about lodging options, see the 2024 Lodging Options document and the related map. Access it here.

Charleston is a vibrant city with lots to see, eat, and do. It is also a historic city with a booming tourist industry and a wide range of lodging options. We have blocked a number of hotel rooms across the city to meet various budgets. Parking will be free on campus during the conference. Ride share options such as Uber and Lyft are widely available and for the more adventurous there are Lime e-Bikes scattered across the city. For large groups, short term rentals may be the best bet. Please use the below links to book with the AAR SE discounted rate. The last day to book at the discounted rate is January 31, 2024.

If you are looking to book your room with the group rate, please contact Lenny Lowe and Brennan Keegan.
